Tumbling, through morning light
A stinging bite
Well, Orpheus sang such sad songs
The stars and rivers cried
Going under and going mad
They climbed the stacks
But try as hard as he did,
He could not help but look back

Love is blind, love is cruel
Love is wild: takes a man, leaves a fool
Love is old, love is new
Love's hurt more, a whole lot worse
Than you've been through
But we go on

Ms. Fitzgerald didn't know what to say
When they sent her away
For she found a side of paradise
That could not make her stay
In the city or on the ground
When her heart unwound
She found tender is the night
But tender also runs aground

Love is blind, love is cruel
Love is wild: takes a man, leaves a fool
Love is old, love is new
Love's hurt more, a whole lot worse
Than you've been through
But we go on
